Do you feel self-conscious of your crooked teeth?
Crooked teeth can make patients feel self-conscious and embarrassed to share their beautiful smile. Many adult patients feel like they are “too old” to straighten their teeth and instead hide their smiles behind their hands or cover their mouths when speaking. Manassas Smiles believes that it is never too late to realign your teeth. Manassas Smiles offers cosmetic solutions for a straighter, healthier, more confident smile.
Crooked Teeth & Oral Health
Crooked teeth can impact the health and function of the jaw, teeth, and gums. Straight, well-aligned smiles are easier to keep clean and function better than crooked smiles. Crooked teeth are hard to keep clean. Brushing and flossing can be troublesome with crooked teeth. Patients are unable to clean all the surfaces of the affected teeth creating a high potential for tooth decay.
Patients with crooked teeth may experience:
- Chronic headaches
- Poor oral hygiene
- Discomfort in the jaw
- Difficulty chewing
Crooked teeth can also affect the alignment of the bite. Patients with crooked teeth are more likely to experience jaw pain or TMD. Realigning crooked teeth can often alleviate painful symptoms associated with TMD.
Treatment Options for Crooked Teeth
Patients often forgo treatment for crooked teeth because they believe it is too late, and do not want to deal with the hassle of traditional braces. Dr. Hassan offers cosmetic procedures as alternatives to metal braces to discreetly and efficiently correct the appearance of a crooked smile. A comprehensive oral health exam and thorough analysis of the bite and jaw will help Dr. Hassan identify what treatment will be most effective for you.
- Invisalign®– Invisalign is a clear aligner system that gradually and discreetly realigns crooked teeth. Invisalign is barely visible and will not interfere with the aesthetics of your smile during treatment. The removable aligners allow for thorough oral hygiene and do not put restrictions on your diet. Aligners are worn in two-week increments and gradually shift teeth into alignment. Invisalign is an effective treatment option for teen and adult patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns.
- Dental Bonding– Bonding is an affordable and easy way to restore the appearance of your smile cosmetically. A flexible resin material is placed on the crooked tooth and molded into shape. Teeth bonding is color matched to blend with your natural smile for a beautiful result.
- Dental Veneers- Porcelain veneers are an ideal solution for cosmetic dental concerns. Designed as a permanent dental restoration, dental veneers are made from professional grade porcelain and look and function like natural teeth. Dental veneers cover the front and sides of the tooth for a beautiful aesthetic result.
